Newcastle Afoot is a locally owned and operated small tour business, with a focus on sharing Newcastle's exciting culture and community.

We saw a gap in the provision of tours that introduce people to Newcastle's modern and diverse cultural landscape, alongside our heritage and gorgeous beaches.

Our Mission

  • To create fun and informative experiences that encourage conversation about the changing face of Newcastle.
  • To assist visitors and those new to town to make the most of their time here.
  • To support local artists, small businesses, and independent bars and clubs. Supporting local community is a core part of why we run this business. We do not receive commission or paybacks for promoting anyone as part of our tours.
  • To provide a balanced and factual tour, in consultation with heritage specialists and appropriate cultural groups. We see a significant need to increase accessible information about Aboriginal heritage and culture in Newcastle.
  • To consider our environmental footprint in every decision we make in the running of our business. 

We acknowledge that the Awabakal and Worimi people are the traditional custodians of the land on which Newcastle Afoot's tours are run. We recognise and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and continuing relationship with the land.
